To prepare for the upcoming ski season the TB team would suggest you complete the strengthening exercises 3-4 x weekly. Inclusion of a 30 min session on the exercise bike will also help keep you on the slopes all day. Stretches should be completed pre and post slope sessions- even better on your hot chocolate pit stops up the top of the mountain.
